I have no idea how I always get so lucky, Yuletide-wise. This year, I got three fabulous stories! And I'm going to try out AO3's "share" function.

desert island, gun to your head (15221 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Kitchen Confidential
Rating: Mature
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply (Potentially triggery for slight dubcon, unspecified mental health concerns, and canon kitchen violence.)
Relationships: Steven Daedalus/Teddy Wong
Characters: Teddy Wong, Seth Richman, Steven Daedalus
Summary: Sane is relative in every kitchen Teddy's ever worked but never more so than now.

Basically, some amazing, brilliant person wrote me 15k of Teddy being complex and messed up and in denial and awesome, plus Steven being perceptive and meddling, plus Seth being Seth, plus everyone else at Nolita being very, very themselves -- and I do mean everyone. I love this fic SO MUCH. It made me laugh out loud multiple times and made my heart ache intensely, and then the resolution made me so happy, and the pacing is perfect, and there are so many smart details and canon references, and seriously, everyone should read this fic! It is incredibly entertaining and full of wacky hijinks and people having feelings they don't want to have. And hilarity! :D

In addition to my ridiculously long and satisfying and brilliant main story, I was lucky enough to also receive two wonderful treats, both for my American Idiot prompt.

Fandom: American Idiot - Green Day/Armstrong
Rating: Explicit
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings (nothing specific I can think of besides perhaps mentions of canon war-related disability (amputation))
Relationships: Tunny/Will, Tunny/Will/Extraordinary Girl
Characters: Tunny (American Idiot), Will, Extraordinary Girl
Summary: When the extraordinary girl came back to Jingletown to stay, Will and Tunny found a way to make it work.

This story is super adorable and sweet and healing, and the last scene is just lovely.

in the end it's right (1381 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: American Idiot - Green Day/Armstrong
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply (brief mentions of drug addiction and canon war-related disability (amputation))
Relationships: Tunny/Will/Extraordinary Girl
Characters: Tunny (American Idiot), Extraordinary Girl, Will (American Idiot)
Summary: Sometimes he thinks he's scared of getting hooked on air, which is fucking crazy because everyone's hooked on air unless they have a motherfucking death wish.

Isn't that the best summary ever? Doesn't it make you want to read the fic? Well, you should totally give into that impulse, because this story is gorgeous, delicate, warm, quiet, matter-of-fact, deftly characterized, and perfect. I love this story so much just thinking about it makes my heart feel three sizes bigger.

So yes, three amazing stories. Thank you so, so, so much, dear anonymous authors. I adore you all! ♥ ♥ ♥

Meanwhile, my two recipients both seem to have liked the fics I wrote them, so I am pleased! One of the stories even has a comment from someone else, which is very exciting! :D I also wrote a little Madness treat (they go live tomorrow), so that's three stories in all. If anyone wants to play the guessing game, if you get one right without insider knowledge I'll write you a little something! :)

It has been a kickass Yuletide -- I also betaed ten fics for other people and hippoed at a busy time, and did quite a bit of tag wrangling as well, so I feel pretty happy with it all around. Yay, Yuletide! :D

Happy holidays, everyone! ♥
